Abstract

A problemática deste artigo centra-se nas diferenças de competitividade entre interior e litoral, tomando os territórios concelhios como espaço de análise. Não obstante as enormes diferenças conhecidas, supôs-se poder existir um potencial de competitividade nas cidades do interior do país, numa concepção de competitividade que se baseia na ideia de que “o ponto de partida para uma política eficaz de desenvolvimento do interior é a recusa em considerar esses espaços como espaços marginais a cargo do país e a adopção de uma nova visão desses territórios como espaços de oportunidades” (MEPAT, 1998). Perante o cenário de um maior número de abordagens científicas de natureza territorial e multidisciplinar e da maior ênfase sobre a necessidade de reformulação de políticas sectoriais face ao persistente fosso de níveis de desenvolvimento entre litoral e interior, julgou-se interessante realizar um estudo que procurasse dar visibilidade aos elementos diferenciadores entre a Beira Litoral e a Beira Interior, que constituem a NUT II – Região Centro de Portugal. Neste artigo perseguem-se dois objectivos essenciais: (1) sistematizar um conjunto de resultados recentes sobre competitividade das cidades médias da região centro de Portugal, com especial preocupação em enfatizar vantagens competitivas das cidades do interior e (2) lançar um elemento novo de discussão, que consiste no papel das novas tecnologias da informação (NTI) como factor potenciador dessa competitividade. Os resultados obtidos perspectivam algumas das oportunidades que se podem colocar aos aglomerados urbanos do interior para competirem com outros centros urbanos mais consolidados e dinâmicos, quase todos localizados no litoral.
